I LOVE LOVE LOVE this!!! :) ... This is my current fave at the moment. I love the suede matte finish it leaves and is really hard wearing. The best bit is it dries SUPER fast. Honestly, as soon as I have applied it.. within a couple of mins it is fully dried to the touch. You can even poke it with your nail and it will NOT leave a mark! Great if you do not have much times/kids/last min application on a night out etc. Worth evry penny.. and some!

This polish sure is beautiful! It was my first matte shade and I do love it. Looks stunning matte but you can also put a topcoat on to deepen the shimmer and colour - and also to make the mani last longer. :P
I wore this with Barry M 3-in-1 tc/bc/strengthener as base and sandwiched between layers and have to say it did last me a good two days before I got bored and removed it - it was chip free at that point.
My only criticism is that it would be opaque after two coats if it wasn't for a very strange patchiness to the application, which I can only attribute to the B3F/matte combo. It needed spot-healing on bald spots after the second coat but due to the matte finish and fast-drying that wasn't a huge issue for me.
Overall would recommend.

I love this polish! The formula is very unique and often brings compliments and questions. It looks great against cool, fair skin. I've worn this on the hands and the toes and love both looks. This particular shade matches a pair of open-toed heels I have perfectly. It makes me smile. I definitely recommend this as a nice alternative to black or navy. It's like a gunmetal grey/black with blue undertones. Sleek, Sexy & Beautiful!

Overall, I love the colour and I love the texture. I love the consistency of it and I love that it dries extremely quickly, so when I need a quick fix, I can paint my nails and be on my way. However, like a majority of the reviews I've read so far, the actual product does not last for very long. Less than 24 hour and at least half of my nails have chipped.
Despite the fat that it doesn't need a top coat, I think I will apply Anna Sui's top coat (amazing top coat that lasts at least 3-4 weeks) because I want to keep this colour for a long time.
Besides that, I love this colour and can't wait to purchase the rest of the line.

out of all the suede colors, this one is by far my favorite (i also have russian navy, lincoln park after dark, and we'll always have paris). all the suede colors dry super fast and are very opaue so you only need 1-2 coats of color. i also have very bad ridges on my nails and found that these are thick enough that i don't need a base coat either. i like suzy skis in the pyrenees the best, bc though i love the unique finish of the suede colors, you can get sick of them fairly quickly. i like that this is a neutral gray color so it's a bit more versatile. of course the biggest downfall of the suede colors is that they don't last very long at all. i do find that they chip easily, even after 1 day of wear, but again, it's easy to get sick of so i guess i don't mind as much.

I absolutely love this color. I hear gray nailpolish is in right now and this is a great color to wear. I love the texture it gives and it's definitely different than the normal shiny or matte polishes. It dries super fast and I personally like that I dont need a topcoat and basecoat. Bad side: it really doesn't last long at all, wash some dishes and half are chipped off. Because of the consistency and drying fast, you'll notice some reside on the rim of your nails and you've got to scrap it off clean. But I personally love this whole line and I prefer this color as a suede polish than the regular color.

I dig it. A dark, matte gray, with a very cool and unique texture. Dries ridiculously fast, covers well (one coat on my toes was enough, but I did a second on my fingers for good measure). The only drawback is that it dries so quickly that after one mani/pedi there's considerable buildup around the neck of the bottle. Not sure yet if that's going to be a problem down the line.

I am absolutely in love with this polish. The colour is a matte-ish gunmental gray with subtle sparkle that's a great, more edgy alternative to black. OPI does say in their display and on the little tag on the bottle that their suede polishes aren't as long wearing as their regular polishes - so I can't fault them that it chips within 1-2 days. However it's so easy to apply and dries in literally seconds that it's no hassle to re-apply or touch up every other day. The brush is awesome too. I don't know if it's the OPI pro-wide brush or not, but the brush makes this so easy to apply even for clumsy hands like mine. For the real 'suede' effect it's recommended not to use a topcoat, but I suppose you can to make it last longer and for a different look if you do use one. This is one of the few polishes that I can see myself finishing the entire bottle. I'm NC50 for reference.

This is a dark grey polish full with lots of silver sparkles. The suede finish is a nice look, much more wearable than matte polish, but still might not be for everyone. Being suede, it doesn't make for a long lasting manicure, as it chips very easily. However, it dries fast, and is beautiful with or without a topcoat (to get the suede look, don't wear one!). It's a polish I rarely wear because of the chipping issues, so I wouldn't rebuy, no matter how much I like the color/finish.

This is a pretty dark gunmetal gray. This has become my go-to lazy color. Its my go-to lazy color because its so easy to apply, dries super fast and is perfect in 2 coats. I love to use this polish on days that I dont have time to do a full mani. In the bottle, it looks very glittery, which is why I hesitated to buy it, but on the nails they looked very low shimmer. My nails looked like wet rocks (matte, non-glossy wet rocks that is). By the second day, I had no chips, and only minor tip wear. I woul buy this again.

This is such a pretty gray matte color. I guess I'd describe it as like a gun metal gray. Almost black but not quite. I found it super easy to apply. I used 2 medium-thick coats. It dried quickly, didn't bubble and the brush didn't drag. It's a thicker polish than normal so I was worried about bubbles and it going on unevenly. It does chip faster than the normal OPI polishes. But no worse than any other matte finish polish. My only real complaint is that it's a little too glittery for what I was looking for.

The suede finish I think looks really cool. It's different and feels smooth. I'm on my second day of wearing it and the tips have worn down a bit, but nothing a small touch up can't fix. If you're looking for something different, this is it. The color is like the other reviewer said, a frosty gunmetal gray that reminds me of wet pavement.

I would stay away from this and not repurchase. I don't regret it as it was interesting and fun to try....but chips within days, application is bad, get more bang for your buck from essie matte top coat, taking it off is a nightmare, the matte wears off after a day....
I don't know. It looks great in the bottle and nice for a hot second on my nails, but that is it.

Suzi Skis, is alright, only because the colour is so unique, smoked out navy :)
But like Here Today...Aragon Tomorrow, the quality is terrible. Chips, flakes, didn't last a day with Seche Vite , didn't last very long even with bonder and seche vite. So if you're willing to wear it for one day,enjoy this wicked navy ;P

This is a very nice color. I agree with the reviewer below: this polish dries super fast and it does indeed look better with a topcoat. I did not find the color to be as flattering as Sephora OPI Absinthe Makes the Heart, another new darkened polish. If I had to choose, I'd get only Absinthe.
I only wore it for less than two days, so I cannot attest to its longevity. No chipping with my Seche Vite topcoat for the days I did wear it.

This is a really pretty polish. It doesn't look much like the original Suzi Skis in the Pyrenees, it is more of a gunmetal color. The suede finish is lovely; but it is hard to work with and dries super fast. It is even better when you do put a top coat on it though!
